We stopped into the Nolita branch of Otte's major boutique sale on Mott Street this afternoon, and though the boutique chain had a sample sale just last week, there's still an impressive selection of clothing in this location's sale section. In case you missed it: Starting today, Otte's sale pieces are an additional 50% off their original markdowns, and what we found will attract plenty of happy shoppers.
Although the sale section here was small, the variety of apparel definitely wasn't. Most styles had at least a couple different sizes available, but there were plenty of one-offs in the mix as well. It's important to note that we found mostly smalls and a few mediums; we didn't notice any larges on the racks.
In apparel, we especially liked the selection of pants and skirts, like the boutique label's Ashley skirt for $99 (from $198) that's available in medium. We also liked their Kimber cargo pants for $53 (from $212) in size small. There was a good selection of black tops (hello, New York uniform), like a v-necked, open-backed A.L.C. top for $103 (from $295).
For dresses, there were only a few left in the sale section, like a Splendid black dress for $48 (from $138) and a white dress by Apiece Apart for $127.50, down from $365. There were a few denim pieces left as well, including some soft J. Brand shorts in a variety of sizes for $62.30 (from $178).
Sale shoes are also an additional 50% off, and they were quickly dwindling. The shoes on sale were flat sandals, specifically K. Jacques St. Tropez's Zenobie gladiator and the Saratoga Cuir. The Zenobie was available in a 36 and 37 in black, and in a 36 in tan, and are marked down to $97.30 from $278. The Saratoga was left in a 39, 40, and 36 for $112 (from $320).
If you're still looking for a few more summery pieces, definitely make your way to an Otte location by tomorrow, or check out their sale selection online. If you'd rather shop IRL, check out the Dealfeed below for hours and locations.
